St. Peter's trail starts by the Tourist information centre in the village Begunje na Gorenjskem, right next to the main bus stop. The village can be reached by public bus from Radovljica, Bled or Tržič - in summer months a local Hop-on Hop-off bus stops there too. For those arriving with therir own transport there are many free parking spaces nearby (in front of pub Jurček, in front of post office).
At the start of the trail you will find an informational panel of Petrova pot (St. Peter's trail) featuringe map of the trail and photograps of main atractions. In summer months you can also obtain a free hiking map (and some local tips) in the Tourist information centre Begunje (wooden hut by the bus station with big letter "i" on the roof).
Each of Begunje theme trails has it's own destinctive colour and symbol. The coulour of St. Peter's trail is grey, it's symbol is St. Peter's key (unlocking the doors of heaven)
From the cluster of information panels head north-west , passing by the fire brigade station and a small cottage used by local farmers to collect milk. In the junction of two roads you will find a small apple tree with a signpost for St. Peter's trail directing you to the left-handside (right : Lamberg's trail).
Continue walking on a paved road amidst the house for a minute or two, until reaching a second junction next to an old pear tree. Turn right (Sign : "Sv. Peter") on continue on a quiet driveway like road gradually ascending alongside private houses. Before reaching the last house, turn left onto a meadow through a narrow passage between a fence and a row of young spruce trees.
Follow the narrow trail ascending across the meadow and leading towards an orchard and electricity pole on the edge of the forest. Trails now enters a young forest scattered by rocky boulders. Soon the narrow path meets a wider tractor track traversing the mountain side. Simply cross the track and you will find yourself back on the narrow forest trail again. Soon other small path will appear both on your left and on your right. Follow the most beaten trail ascending upwards signposted with St. Peter's key or red circle with red eye (registered trail of Slovenian Alpine Association).
All paths should meet by stone built shrine next to a rocky boulder. Continue walking upwards on this ancient path of pilgrims until reaching a small chapel on the edge of the forest. From here you can already see the church of St. Peter and Gorjak mountain farm. Walk towards the farm until reaching it's front yard. From there, a staircase made of stone leads you to the walls surrounding the church. Walk round the walls to find another interesting shrine with a natural cave at it's feet. Excellent views of Karavanke mountains and Ljubljana basin can be enjoyed here on a clear day.
Walk further on the northern side of the church to meet a gravel road ascending from the valley on your right. Join the road leading you further north-west across wide open meadows. Reaching the forest again turn left and continue on the gravel road towards a smaller telecommunication tower. The road gradually ends and continues in a number of zig-zag paths leading toward an alpine hut.
Sankaška koča hut (867 meters above the sea level) is the highest point of the walk and a perfect place to stop for refreshments or to enjoy the view of Julian Alps and Lake Bled (panoramic terrace).
Leaving the hut, take the left hand side gravel road leading south east. In the first junction, turn right and continue walking back towards the church of St. Peter. Reaching the steeple of St. Peter's church, choose the gravel path descending down across the meadow and a water well. The stony path enters a forest (overgrown scree slope) and gets a bit rugged. The path sometimes resembles to a bob track - which is not a coincidence since you are walking on an abandoned sledge race track. Reaching a wider gravel road and a parking space (wooden barn on your right hand side), walk straight across the road to reach a single track through a forest. In a minute the path brings you to a cattle pasture with an electric fence (former ski slope with a small chair-lift). Descend alongside a pasture to a colourful wide open wooden shack full of fitness equipment (Trim Krpin). Feel free to exercise there before continuing the descent on one of the trails leading into the forest. You can choose to overcome an obstacle course on the way down, or walk alongside on a normal path. All trails bring you to Krpin recreational centre with a small bar and children's playgrounds. At the foot of a former ski slope you will notice a narrow trail leading across the meadows alongside a small brook (Blatnica).
Follow the grassy path along the stream until finally crossing the stream and reaching a non paved parking area next to a historic building. Walk across the parking space towards an impressive mansion and an avenue of chestnut trees. Reaching the chestnuts and the second bridge continue straight forward on a gravel road. (If you are interested in WWII events you can visit the nearby museum of hostages in the northern wing of the mansion).
The road brings you to a roofed bridge (benches on the side), turn right and continue alongside the orchard towards a larger socialist period apartment house. Reaching the paved road leading alongside a stone build wall you will return back to the fire brigade station and the start of the walk.
